|SLO County Writing Celebration 5.20.13|
Celebrating & recognizing
first-twelfth grade authors!
Last evening, our office (San Luis Obispo Co Office of Education) hosted an awards ceremony to recognize 126 selected authors for this year's academic writing event. ArtsObispo, our local arts council, assisted with the expenses of the event & designed the programs, plus an anthology of winning entries.
As much as I LOVED formatting, creating and editing this ANNUAL PUBLICATION, it was a great relief to have someone else produce an anthology! Kristi (support staff for this project) & I would spend at least 4-5 weeks putting the SLOCOE publication together. With budget cuts to education, those days are gone, so having agency support was crucial to keep this academic venue preserved.
|POETRY OUTLOUD flags|
ArtsObispo also coordinates the local Poetry Out Loud Competition (for high schoolers), a national poetry recitation competition sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation.
One event completed, another to go! Tomorrow evening, our local ADL (Anti-Defamation League) advisory board will recognize all the schools & after-school programs who participated in three student-identified projects.
Other than painting & putting our condo back together, I haven't had my camera out...
master bedroom & this bathroom were both painted last weekend...
Ecru... a nice color to tone down the previous "sage green" tones in these rooms.
the "Creole Cottage" color really warmed up the guest bedroom...
still need to bring in books, hang pictures, etc...
but, the bed is made!
OKAY Mom... book your visit for June!
I'm participating in Tamar's P52 Project... posting pictures from the previous week (similar to Scavenger Hunt Sunday)... You can see the other participants HERE!
Tomorrow, I'll share details about my next camera adventure! See you Wednesday!
